Senator Patty Murray 15h
By slashing the number of refugees allowed in the U.S., the Trump Admin is abandoning American values and our role in the global community. Scapegoating families fleeing horrific violence is shameful, wrong, and runs counter to national security expert recommendations.

Dr. Ford’s allegation against Judge is disturbing & should be fully investigated by the FBI. should delay vote on his nomination until that investigation is complete & this serious allegation has been heard by the committee in the appropriate way.

Senator Patty Murray 15h
This week’s Judiciary Committee vote on Judge Kavanaugh should be delayed. This is not a difficult decision. The fact is that Senators have new information about a potential crime committed by a Supreme Court nominee and an accuser who has come forward.

As we discuss the need to take the allegations against Judge seriously, let us remember one critical point: sexual assault is traumatic to relive and retell. We should not stand in judgment of Dr. Ford's timing.

Senator Patty Murray 18h
After seeing the awful way Anita Hill was treated by an all-male Judiciary Committee about the now-Justice Clarence Thomas, I was inspired to run for the Senate. We must stand up for women like Professor Ford—women who speak up & share their stories.

We should be very careful in weighing who sits on our highest court. In light of the allegation of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh, we need to slow down and conduct the confirmation process with the seriousness required to get this right.

I’m still waiting for a meeting with Judge Kavanaugh I’ve requested four times. I have a number of questions for him. Meantime, I agree there should be an investigation of the new allegations against him. I believe the people involved should appear before the Judiciary committee.

These are very serious allegations. Both Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford have agreed to testify in front of the Judiciary Committee and that needs to happen. And we must have a full and thorough investigation before anything else can happen with this nomination.

These allegations against Judge Kavanaugh are extremely serious. Professor Ford deserves the opportunity to have her voice heard and tell her story before the Judiciary Committee acts on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination.

The allegations made against Judge Kavanaugh are serious and merit further review. Given the nature of these allegations, and the number of outstanding questions, I believe the Judiciary Committee should hold off on Thursday’s scheduled vote. - Joe

The Judiciary Committee simply cannot vote on Judge Kavanaugh's nomination this Thursday. There should be a full investigation, and Professor Ford deserves to be heard. This is a serious allegation, and we have a responsibility to listen.

We must STOP the secrecy and rushed process of Kavanaugh’s nomination. Until we have a full investigation, Kavanaugh should not be reported out of the Judiciary Committee. Christine Blasey Ford made the brave choice to come forward. She must be heard and respected.

Christine Blasey Ford has displayed tremendous courage in coming forward. These accusations are credible and extremely serious – and demand a thorough investigation. Therefore, the vote this Thursday must be canceled.
